Has half of the features I want in a podcast app 3/5
Since Apple screwed us with the new Podcasts app, I want an app that gives you a feed of new episodes of subscribed podcasts and lets you really easily listen to old episodes of podcasts in order. This app seems to do the latter well and Overcast does the former so I guess I’m stuck using two apps unless I find a better alternative. Too bad Apple hates its users and decided to give Podcasts the worst update possible, because I really liked the old app.
Continuous play 3/5
By Texas Utag
I would like to go from one episode to the next without having to click on each one to start it. I often find it difficult and annoying especially if the podcasts are short.
Let us pay to get rid of ads!!!!!!!!!!!!! 4/5
Just downloaded this yesterday, and so far, it seems great. I can now listen to episodes one after the other again, functionality removed from Apple's Podcast app. BUT, OH, THE ADS ARE MAKING ME CRAZY!!!!!!!!! Please let us pay a couple bucks to get rid of them!!!!! I don't know how long I can take this annoyance. Seriously, I may go back to Apple's app over this.
Doesn't refresh often or something, so available podcasts are a day old. No option to play newest releases or indication of which podcasts have new episodes. No easy next up playlist... Bare bones.
Easy to use 5/5
The only improvement would be a timer to set to stop podcasts before bedtime. But much easier product to use than others I've tried.
Why do I have to keep downloading? 3/5
Good app with all the most popular podcasts. However, when you download an episode you have to listen to it fairly soon after or it goes away and you have to redownload it. Ads aren't to big a deal to me, but constantly downloading the same episodes are annoying.
I’ve never had this app before but iCatcher! Is hands down the best podcast app for iPhone it’s rated #1 on market. It’s premium app pay 2.99 once. The app developers update it constantly and very customizable thank me later
Simple and Clean 4/5
Great app. Simple to use and is perfect for it’s purpose. Would love an Ad-Free version. So I stop hitting the ad by mistake when tapping a podcast.
Very good podcast app 4/5
I really like this app. I think it will be even more popular as it grow. I feel it needs to keep content updated more quickly, unless it’s an issue with the podcasters themselves. I really love how simple it is to use this app. Please keep making this app better and better!
Layout messed up on iPhone X 1/5
The whole layout is messed up on iPhone X. Please fix it.
Ads are annoying 1/5
Please offer an ad free version.
So far so good 4/5
Had to download this because apples podcast app just stopped working. So far so good I can easily search for and listen to my favorite podcasts
Excellent app.. I strongly recommend Criminal and Sword and Scale!!
Best podcast app but needs pay option 4/5
Love this app, much more than any other podcast app out there. 4 stars only because there needs to be an option to pay and remove ads. Clicking the little X is annoying and potentially dangerous if you’re one of those people who listens to podcasts while driving. Then I will give 5 stars.
It’s good 4/5
By Floyd P!nk
It’s a nice and pretty app but the ads are supper annoying.
This app is great, but the ads aren’t 1/5
Good ux in this app. The full screen unstoppable advert are not tho. Yes I’d pay to remove them. It also crashes intermittently.
New Episodes? 2/5
This app is loads better than Apple’s but I’m finding it difficult to see new episodes of the podcasts I’m subscribed to. I know a new show came out this morning and it is 530 pm and its still not showing? Have to give this a low rating for being about a day behind with new episodes.
By Mermaid Trina
Love the app. The only things I have some criticism on is the ads, but I get it. Also I wish there was a way to save episodes, maybe in a playlist, not just saving them to “listen later”.
So Long! 1/5
The recently updated Podcast did away with the feature that would show episode time on summaries. I switched to Overcast, and it has everything I need.
Search Button Doesn’t Work 2/5
The search button doesn’t seem to work which makes it difficult to search for podcasts lol. Fix it and I’ll use your app again
Decent app but.... 2/5
It no longer updates to give you the latest podcasts. Refresh doesn't work. Please fix. Trying another podcast app instead.
Great app! 5/5
So many podcasts to choose from!
Deserves zero stars 1/5
By Jim Grefig
It’s easier to go to the original web site, avoid the one day delay, avoid stupid adds and listen to the podcast you wanted to listen to.
Is it not strange that my original negative comment disappeared? No!
Now it’s up to a two day delay before the podcasts are updated.
Good but missing some basic features 3/5
Can’t like or save from your phone. If it’s a really good podcast, I’d like to save & forward to my friends.
Wonderful except ads 4/5
I would pay to use this app instead of Apple’s podcast app. It is much better for searching, and cleaner and easier for managing and playing. The non-removable fullscreen ads that have to be closed periodically are the only problem.
Please make it a paid app, and I will pay!
New content? 4/5
Should have a way to know when a new podcast is uploaded. Have to click through all subscribed to see if new content
Ads too bad. 3/5
Expected banner ads and would have been fine with banners, extra audio ads, or tag lines. Ads instead cover the entire screen and pop up when you press play/pause, every time a new cast starts, etc. SUPER annoying. I really hated the new layout to Apple Podcast and was really hoping for a replacement but this isn’t going to be it.
Need a way to remove ads 4/5
I really like this app but the extremely frequent ads are problematic. Please add an option to remove ads, preferably through an in-app purchase.
No way to remove ads. Would gladly pay for an ad free experience. Deleted.
Needs updates 3/5
Doesn’t list the downloaded casts in order by date - my biggest gripe
Ads .... big ol ads. I would pay to remove ads.
Needs to show played podcasts better. Use a diff color or something! Not rocket science.
Get rid of podcasts that don’t update their stuff - a bigger issue than just with the app
Continuous play, where is it? 1/5
Why does the app have to be open every time it loads the next que’d item?
Leadership Wealth Wave 5/5
Amazing. Informative Pure Leadership. Honored to be a part of this!
Awesome Info 5/5
Great tips we can implement immediately!
Small town murder 5/5
So entertaining, informative but even more, these guys crack me up, they’re s riot.
Not that good 1/5
1) Cannot Force a new search for new episodes of a pod cast series. I know a new episode of my favorite daily podcast was released this morning but this app refuses to look for it (yes, I am subscribed). 2) I’m sick of seeing a full screen ad for Audible every time I start a podcast. It seems there is a minimum time you must have the ad on your screen before it can be deleted. The developers must have no respect for my time and I really resent that. For those two reasons, I have started using a competing app.
Simply elegant 5/5
Easy to use, intuitive.
Great podcasts 5/5
Amazing coverage of many different stories and amazing quality channel..
Constantly bombarded by intrusive ads that open my browser without my permission. DELETED!
Podcast AP 5/5
Enjoying the wide variety of podcasts. Informative and educational.
Not user friendly 2/5
The previous podcast app, which I use daily, was much more user friendly. New podcasts would pop up after they had been added and then could download them on WiFi to listen later instead of using data when I listen to them in the car.
I would PAY to remove the apps. 4/5
I would pay money to remove the ads on this app. That's how amazing it is.
Sequential play 1/5
By NO GOOD FIX
Cannot find settings to set sequential play to make it go from podcast podcast without interruption
Ability to add podcasts via URL 3/5
Please add this.
Works fine but no sleep timer 3/5
I was really happy with everything until I discovered the lack of sleep timer. That’s a deal breaker for me. Also I’d prefer to pay for no ads.
Missing favorites 2/5
You can have favorites for who you want to follow, but missing ability to have episode favorites, new version of apple podcast is missing this name w too.
Switch to Android and use podcast addict, best of both worlds.
No adds please 4/5
I agree with the previous reviewer, I will pay to not to be constantly pestered by pop ups.
Can't even import/export via opml.
No option to change play speed 2/5
Podcasts are slow. There needs to be a way to play them faster
So far so good 5/5
It works, I'm new to podcasts. Download, search, play.
Awesome app 5/5
Great for some well known podcasts
